A horse that has earned his name in the community!! A Babysitter! You have to know his story …

“Budlight” is a big, beautiful horse with “the most humble” personality! He is a Baby Doll! For the past two years, Budlight has been with a couple that lives about 4 miles from us. They own the Captain D’s restaurant – and Linda has been trail riding Budlight for the past two summers. They are lowering the number of horses they have as there is only the two of them riding! Because he is “the type of horse we need”, – they agreed to sell him to us. —— Prior to them owning him, there is a man in our community who has a serious drinking problem. He used to ride so drunk, that the stories of him and Budlight are humerous to most and absolutely unbelievable that he did not get hurt. The story goes that Budlight “took care of him”, and could find his way back to the trailer! Many have seen him laying over Budlight’s neck, barely hanging on,…..riding down the blacktop highway. He has ridden Budlight down to the town square several times, and on two different occasions, he got a DUI for riding a horse drunk. How many horses are there that one could do this and be safe!!!!! —— Because of his “have to take care of my rider” temperament, Budlight is the very best with children of all ages!! If you fall off……he absolutely stops and waits! Many have seen him do this! —- I always advise everyone that when it comes to small children, we should all use “common sense”. Because of his height, I would NEVER!!!! do this,……but “IF I WERE TO DO IT” ,….. Budlight is the kind of horse that I would allow a young 5 – 7 year old to ride alone……Again, I would never risk a child getting hurt with falling off a 15.1 hand horse! I would never do this! — Because of his cautious personality, he is wonderful for timid, beginner riders! You can ride Budlight bareback, double, or lead several children on him. He will follow another horse on trails,……He is contented wherever in a group, and will ride off alone without hesitation! He has years of experience on challenging trails and does not hesitate to cross anything you ask of him. Needless to say, Budlight is non-spooky, and is very much traffic broke!!! —————–As for his ground manners, – “the very best”! He is very respectful, – with quiet, calm, still-like movements! He absolutely stands still to mount, and mounts from the mounting block or other places! Budlight has a very slow motion —-mosey along walk, and will do that all day. He has a beautiful smooth riding gait, and will come right back down to his slow walk on voice command. If you are a timid, beginner rider, Budlight will teach you how to ride! As for his personality, he is a very loving horse that loves attention, petting, hugs,…….and he will take care of you!!

Hi ConnieSue -
We spoke a few months ago about Budlight (my husband and I purchased him from Mel in Georgia).  Bud is still in Georgia, with us, and lives a very contented lifestyle.
Although he is my husband's horse, I have ridden him several times and he is always the same - just a good old boy.   We have had no issues with him about anything - in the barn, under saddle, farrier, etc.   He takes everything in stride.
I wanted to let you know that he is in a good home and very much loved.
I am not a good photographer (as you can see!) but wanted to send you photos of him in his new home.  Last photo is of him in paddock with his buddies.
